Box Score Providence, R.I. -
The 22nd-ranked Boston College field hockey team tallied its fifth win of the season with a 3-2 victory over Providence on Sunday afternoon. The Eagles (5-5) evened out their record on the Friars' (5-3) home field.
"This was a great regional win for the team," head coach Ainslee Lamb said. "The entire team contributed to the performance and ultimately the win. As always, Providence played hard until the very end and I felt our players did a good job of maintaining their composure and level of play throughout the game. We did a better job of creating threatening opportunities in the attacking circle and working hard to provide scoring chances."
